Broiled Ugli Fruit

So I finally bit into the ugli fruit.  It definitely doesn’t have an ugly taste.


The taste is quite…tangy.  Sour even.  More like a sour orange than a bitter grapefruit, and not as sweet as a tangerine.


I had mentioned in an earlier post that I wanted to try broiling the ugli fruit, much like one would broil a grapefruit for breakfast.  I cut it in half.  I sprinkled coconut sugar and freshly grated ginger on one half and placed it under the broiler for 5 mins.  I ate the other half in the meanwhile.  Contrary to what I had posted earlier, I wouldn’t juice the ugli fruit.  If I did, I would at least juice an orange with it to add some sweetness.


I like the finished product!  Broiling the ugli fruit brought out more of its grapefruity-ness, which I didn’t mind, but is a problem if you don’t like grapefruit.


1 ugli fruit (or grapefruit)

1 tsp coconut sugar

1 tbsp freshly grated ginger


  1. Set the broiler on hi (or low – it’s up to you)
  2. Sprinkle the grated ginger and coconut sugar onto the cut side of the fruit
  3. Place the fruit on baking sheet
  4. Let broil for 5 minutes
  5. Let cool of 1 minute
  6. Scoop out the pegs and enjoy!
